Castle Combe Action Day 28th June 2014?

Post by Thread Bear »

Below is copy of the email flyer sent to me for this event. Rather daft as it does not tell you that the date of this event is the 28th of June
. 10 cars can enter free on a club stand. Passingers have to pay, as do extra cars. Sounds about the right size for BX locals and some friendly other Citroens. You would need to look at the website to check out fees and rules for lapping sessions. Previous experience is if you want to lap, get there early as there is a que later in the day.

Well in that short period it would seem there is interest in this.

Looking at the info it would seem to require a Club Secretary and address to apply when the application form is released in the new year. Do we have such a thing? Also they are looking for Club public liability insurance. Again not sure if BXclub has this.

As to the cars on the stand. Those that are static have a pass to enter and park. Stand cars that wish to participate in lapping require the further pass to get on the track and move to the paddock. It would seem there might be some reduced rates from entering off the club stand and thus pre booking. You may find such tickets are time limited to early morning sessions, so be warned. Anyway full details are to be issued by the organiser after New Year, including lapping fees.
Club stand material is OK but they are asking if there are to be tent/gazibo structures to go up. Probably a positional and insurance issue. I have none of this sort of stuff so if there is a demand for it it will need to come from elsewhere. The application needs to state we intend doing it. Carpet?

With the above in mind, I am happy to head this up unless there is an official secretary who should do it. Alternatively it can be pushed at CCC, but that would then limit the number of BX present. Might be worth them taking a stand themselves, or the whizzo AX boys or whomsoever. The older hands will have more idea on the sort of take up that might occur from differing groups.

I have gone back to this site. The application form is now available. The details remain as above but there is still no advertised fee for lapping sessions.

However if there is interest, which there seems to be, I will go ahead and book us a 10 car plot.

:?: So questions;

That you are happy for me to act as 'Club Secretary' and 'Safety Officer' (Do I get a hat and clipboard? [-X ) for this one off booking. If not the application will need to go to the relevant person who is holding that position for BXClub.

The 10 cars booked into the plot gain free entry for the car and driver to static display. Passengers would need to buy entrance prior, £12, or at the gate on the day, £15. So the first 9 people to confirm a booking get those 'free' places, as I am having the first one. The passes should come to me a month before the event, so end of May. I will forward them to those who have claimed them so they can drive straight in the gate.
Now I have done this before and then had folk not turn up, voiding their ticket, and preventing someone later claiming free entrance. My habit has therefore to demand a deposit of £12 to secure a 'free' ticket, handing the deposit back at the event in cash. Otherwise the deposit tendered reverts to club funds, if it cannot be used to get another person through the gate.
The alternative to myself, an unknown, is if someone better known, Tim Leach, for instance, holds these deposits, but that could be more complicated if they are not going to be present on the day. Alternatively we do not bother and just trust folk will be true to their word.

Extra cars will be allowed entrance, by purchase as above, but may not make it onto the stand if there is no room. A pass is required in any case.

It says set up can be started 16.00 hours the prior day. Therefore there must be some ability to camp. I need to find out about that.

The organizers need to know if we wish to put up a gazebo or other structure. Tarmac is not to be damaged.

The organizers would like to know if we are to be static or if members of the cars on display intend to take part in lapping sessions. If lapping the reserve the right to ban clubs consuming alcoholic beverages from taking part. So lapping means we are all on the cart, well till the've finished anyway.

The biggy really. The Club need to show it has insurance cover for events. This is becoming common with organizer seeking to pass on the costs of insurance. Argue as much as you like, it is the way it is. No insurance, no event as the BXClub. We would need a club that has insurance, like CCC?

Comments welcome.

Just as well, Stephen :!: . No one reacted to my request on resolving club insurance, or entry primary, :cry: so we have no stand at Castle Coombe #-o. As the organiser it would fall to my liability [-X . Sorry, not taking that risk on, I like my new house :D . I expect the Paddock will be fully booked by now, so not this year? Anyway I am doing something else that weekend, since the BXs did not want to come out and play :| .
Looks like Matlock this weekend. Coningsby and Sutton Bridge last. Nice to get out and about at last \:D/ .
